Good God what is the world coming to, well shouldn't be surprised I guess considering the way the 2020's have been so far...
I hope they are all alright.

People say it's a hoax, I hope so, but I live in the U.K. and not a million miles from Salisbury, where Putin tried to kill that person and his daughter with nerve agent.. anything is possible these days sadly.
